When someone dies there is a lot to be done in a short period of time, precisely when we don’t feel like it at all. The key person to help you make arrangements for a funeral is the Funeral Director. We work with all of the funeral directors in Newport and the surrounding area. If you would like the service to take place in the Cathedral ask the funeral director to contact us to make the arrangements.
Funerals at the Crematorium or Cemetery
If you would like one of the Cathedral clergy to conduct a funeral at the Crematorium or Cemetery, please ask the funeral director to contact us. It helps us if we are asked before the date is finalised, so that we can make sure we are available.
What will happen?
Once we have been asked to conduct a funeral the clergy person taking the service will contact you so that we can meet to talk about the service. If an Order of Service is to be printed we will advise on the order it needs to be in.
We have a lot of experience in making sure that this is personalised so that it reflects the person who has died and helps the bereaved. The Church in Wales services allow a lot of scope for this and provide good resources for us to draw on.
